Opening the year on NBC’s Today program was Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, ‘the lightining baton from Lithuania’. Mirga is one of three Dudamel associate conductors at the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
‘Am I one of the luckiest guys on the planet to watch this?’ cries NBC’s Harry Smith. Watch the segment here.
We’ll be hearing a lot more of Mirga before the month is out.
